Not since the Armory Show has anything been quite so shocking as the Artists’ 15-8 (some said 14-8) win over the Writers in Saturday’s 66th Artists and Writers Softball Game.
“O wonder! / How many goodly extra-base hits were there! / How beauteous the Artists’ lineup was! / O, brave new world. . . .”
There were two sporting events of note on Sunday — the Red Devil long-distance bay swims in Amagansett that benefited East Hampton’s Ocean Rescue Squad, and Ellen’s (5K) Run in Southampton, a benefit for the Ellen P. Hermanson breast cancer foundation.
The run and walk drew a field of around 800. Fifty-one competitors swam in the swims.
